2012 Compass Rose Tenor Style B Custom

Posted by on October 17, 2012

  • 2012
  • New, with warranty from maker
  • Adirondack Spruce top
  • Beeswing Figured Makore back and sides
  • Black binding
  • Lightweight Open Gotoh tuners
  • Carbon fiber fingerboard reinforcement
  • Cantilevered Ebony fingerboard
  • Brass fingerboard side inlays
  • Soundport
  • Deluxe Access Gig Bag – better than some hardcases we’ve seen!
  • Rick Turner’s experience as a luthier is evident here: it is the little things which make such a big difference. The slight bevel to the fingerboard bindings for comfort,  the setup: low but plenty of space to spare on the saddle… the list can go on.
  • When we were ordering this uke, Rick told us he had just resawn some Makore,  he told us: ” It’s a “bee’s wing” pattern, and very hard.  Rings like a bell…very rosewood-like tap tone.” …we were convinced immediately!
  • Paired with an Adirondack top, this ukulele is just plain great sounding. Volume to spare, it is articular, clear but with an underlying warmth which is highly appealing.
  • List Pricing: US$1625….. Our pricing $OLD
  • Please contact us to purchase or if we can help at all!
